Quick hint: Ignore bin, target, build etc dirs in Eclipse CVS and SVN Synchronize View

02 Jun 2009 by @ahtik

Directory ignore feature for svn and cvs in Eclipse Synchronize View is located in a straightforward place but still from time to time we tend to forget. I keep looking at SVN settings and synchronize View Menu but it is not there.

Here it comes:

Window->Preferences->Team->Ignored Resources
Faster is to simply type "ignored" into preferences quick search!

Here you can add patterns like "bin", "build", "target" etc so these will be ignored.

Please be aware that this kind of ignore patterns are not conceptually correct -- ignored resources should be configured at the svn repository meta-info level!
